Screenplay Ghostwriter Services

Screenplay ghostwriter services are an effective way to ensure your story is written to the highest professional standard. Successfully delivering your project to the competitive film and television markets takes a lot of luck… but it takes a lot more in the way of know-how.

A lot of writers come to me with a feature film or television story idea in mind, but they’re unsure what services they need. 

Here are the full array of services offered and what they entail.

Story Development

Every story begins with a central idea. Call it the spark of story inspiration. Most writers either start out with the main character, a central problem/conflict or an undeniable story moment and build the remainder of the story from there. 

I like to say that these are the “what if” moments where your story begins to take shape.

Something has to happen after “what if” though. A story has to take shape out of the wide range of possibilities. That main character needs skills and flaws. There probably needs to be a villain or antagonist somewhere. Their journey together needs to form what writers often call the narrative arc.

This is what we call story development. 

I offer high-quality screenplay and teleplay development services that help bring your story idea from “what if” to “WOW”. Using a blend of knowledge from classical and mythological storytelling principles and modern methods, I can help you carve a strong and relatable story. 


Getting from a well-developed concept to the page is the next phase in the progression. Unless you’re already recognized as one of Hollywood’s A-List screenwriters or producers, however, you can’t sell a studio or agent on merely a pitch.

You need a well written, properly formatted screenplay to bring to the market.

A properly written screenplay is work on a par with a novel (although comparing them is really more like apples to oranges). However, you choose to look at it, writing one hundred and ten pages of professional-grade screenplay requires years of practice. 

As an award-winning screenwriter with multiple projects on my resume, my screenwriting work in a variety of genres and formats is top-notch. If you already have your concept together and need a writer to bring it to life, you’ve come to the right place.

In most instances, I offer clients multiple drafts of an original screenplay project, rewritten off of feedback. Just like a novel requires a second draft (or more) in order to get to its best quality, screenplays are collaborative.

You and I work together until the project is something you want to put your name on.

Screenplay Ghostwriter Services: ReWrites & Polishes

Have you just gotten feedback from a screenplay reader and you’re unsure what to do about it?

Sometimes I have found the best feedback leaves me lost for a while. Screenplay consulting services are out there and I feel like they are an excellent option for unlocking what your script needs to be the best it can be. Working with outside feedback is the hallmark of a professional writer.

What to do with five pages of notes, however, can be tricky. 

When you feel stuck on where to go next with your screenplay, I can help with a ghostwritten screenplay rewrite. Bring me your problems! Your underdeveloped characters and flat storylines. As a new set of eyes with an experienced professional’s point of view, I can help you translate consultant feedback into story action.
